    Erik Brown is Managing Director of Publishing Business Ltd (PBL). PBL produces Mayfair Times, Mayfair PA, The Portman, Sloane Square and Belgravia magazines and the Sloane and Belgravia directories.

    Brown is a craftsman journalist - literally. He was indentured to Thomson Regional Newspapers in the 1970s and served a six year apprenticeship on daily newspapers in the North East. During that time he was a theatre critic, education correspondent, crime correspondent, chief reporter and chief features writer. He left the north to join one of the UK's most venerable technical titles, The Engineer, as chief sub-editor. He subsequently became editor of the commercial real-estate newspaper Estates Times.

    Twenty years ago he founded Publishing Business and, while continuing to write as a journalist for his own titles and others, including Management Today and The Director, he has worked as a trainer (in journalism, effective communications, writing winning business proposals and sales) and as a copywriter and business consultant. Commercial clients have included the Walt Disney Company, Sainsbury and the British Airports Authority.
